CHQ also still has PIT and FWA as Saab domiciles. I think that both will be closed within a few months, as there are only four TP destination still served by CHQ, including PIT and FWA and those are EAS cities, I believe.
LGA, BOS, RIC, PHL, CMH, and IND are all US.
CMH also is a base for HP
STL is a base for AAC
and MCO will become a base for DL sometime this fall.
Note that CMH doubles as a domicile for HP and US. To the best of my knowledge, I think the lines are mixed together, but am not sure. Someone else may be able to give a better response to that. RIC and CMH opened as crew bases because the company was overnighting multiple aircraft there and it eventually became more cost effective to make it into a domicile to save on hotel costs. Any other questions, post 'em up.
The lines in CMH are intermixed with us and hp lines. Hence the CHQ hat brace and wings. The hp trips are rumored to be much better then the us ones with a few overnights. The hp staff really take good care of the crews and jets. Most crews refer to us flying as the "dark side" with few overnights and horrible support from us staff. I am currently LGA based and reside in FL, so I am very excited about the new code share.
There are people in training now that were recalled. I think their original hire dates were from June or July last year. The last class hired was in early August of last year and they haven't been recalled yet. Hope that helps.
In Lga I count seven CA's that are pretty senior, and about six or seven FO's. As far as PHL, maybe two or three, IND might have a couple go down same with CMH. But the real question that keeps me up at night is, what about the rumors of IND and CMH doing the flying in FL initially? And how many CA's gonna take a pay cut? Something to think about.....
I guess that means there will be some movement around the system then. I wouldn't expect too many Captains to want to go there with the reduced pay, unless of course that we get one scale for all three jets. FO's might be a different story. As for IND and CMH doing the intitial flying, I haven't heard that one.
There's still around 30 of us that are still on furlough at CHQ. Last indication I heard was early fall before the next round of callbacks. As for 200 new pilots, I wouldn't hold my breath, that sounds like more of a joke than a rumor. From what I've heard everything is on hold at the moment to see if Airways gets their gov't money or not. But then again, this is the airline world.....Who Knows What's Going On?
There are a lot of 140 Captains in STL that will go to MCO. They won't take a pay cut to do it. Also, with 7 or 8 145s going into MCO, assuming they keep them segregated, a lot of VERY senior people will go to MCO and keep 145 pay.
